As discussed in SLP 4, you were asked to prepare a PowerPoint presentation of your mini-proposal with the following components:

  • Title: Provide a title for your proposal.
  • Rationale: Identify the topic and describe why this study is needed for a given organization (include a justification of the importance of your topic either from empirical evidence or literature)
  • Research Question(s): Identify one or two research questions based on the rationale
  • Literature Review: What topics would have to be covered in your literature review? (Just list the topics.) List business theories that would be relevant to this study. Explain why they would be relevant.
  • Methodology: Discuss the research design (e.g., qualitative case study, quantitative survey, action/evaluation research) that would be appropriate to answer your research question(s). Who would be the participants? What would be the procedures for data collection and analysis?
  • Significance: Discuss how your research would help the organization and who would benefit.
  • Reference list

In this SLP 5 you will record a short 5-minute video where YOU briefly discuss your potential area of research and share the link to your presentation in the Module 5 Discussion. You can use any technology you feel comfortable with as long as you share only the LINK to your video with your class and we can hear you and see you talking about your research.

You can use an improved version of the PowerPoint slides you created for SLP4 or any other material you find useful for this assignment. You are welcome to use any material as long as you record yourself talking about your potential research topic. We encourage you to use any creative approach. The only conditions are that you should share a LINK only with the class that is no longer than five minutes and that we can hear you (better if we can also see you) talking about your research ideas.
